Practicing God’s Presence

There’s a great blog post and excerpt over at Kingdom People. It offers up some wisdom from Charles Spurgeon: “Brethren, what is true of pastors is true of all our people – you need to read!”

That is very true. I might extend that to our times and say this: Brethren, what is true of pastors is true of all our people – we need to get into the presence of God! In His presence there is fullness of joy. In His presence there is everything we need.

I love Brother Lawrence’s book, “Practicing the Presence of God.” What an amazing account of a man with a revelation of God’s wonderful presence. Of course, we live in a different time now. He was a monk in a slow-moving world with little to distract him, some say. Is it possible to live that way — experiencing and realizing God’s presence moment by moment — in todays modern, fast-paced society?

Absolutely. All things are possible if you believe. The question is, do you have the faith for it? If not, you can get it by hearing the Word of God. God is with you. He will never leave you or forsake you. I challenge you today to begin practicing the presence of God. It begins with an awareness that He’s right there with you.
